RESTAURANTE CAN PUJOL

This restaurant is next to the sea, in Cala de Bou, on a stretch of rocky coastline, at the far end of the bay of Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio Abad) but is in the jurisdiction of Sant Josep de sa Talaia (San José).

It started, as a small snack bar over thirty years ago. 

It is nan,a no-frills restaurant, serving superb seafood.

With an open kitchen you can see all the chefs at work.

There is a live tank, where you can choose your lobster if you wish.

You must try El Bullit de Peix con Arroz a Banda de Can Pujol, which is the house classic.

BAR RESTAURANT TOKI-ALAI

A visit in 2016

Heading east along the coast road from Mundaka, you will find this lovely restaurant,

which is situated on a beautiful little surfers beach.

It is a fair sized stone restaurant/bar, with one wall of glass looking out onto the beach with a fantastic view, it is a great spot for a nice relaxing lunch, trying a few delicious pintxos at the bar, or having a more leisurely meal in the evening.  

There is a very good menu del dia for €20, which consists of 2 starters, 2 mains, dessert, bread and wine.

Estofado de chorizo y frijoles (chorizo & bean stew)

After meeting Jonathon Lipsin and Bernadette Mundy on Facebook through our joint love of Ibiza, Formentera and music, I invited them over to Ibiza for a days tour of the Island for food, fun and frolics each year.

This was to be our second trip and we met at our usual meeting place outside the Café Mar y Sol in Ibiza Town after their short sea trip from Formenter, we were joined this time by my friends from London, Danny and Pankaj.

Once settled in our hire car I gave them a CD I had made of their favourite music (this had become a regular tradition) and we set off for our tour. Leaving the busy Eivissa (Ibiza town) w...

I took a pill in Ibiza and it was an antacid by Jonathon Lipsin

If you click on the people or places highlighted in BLUE it will take you to a link for further info. 

It was a perfect day really.

Bernadette and I drove to the ferry and boarded an 8am boat to Ibiza. We landed at the old familiar dock and made our way down the street to Mar y Sol Cafe. This has been the spot to grab a good coffee and breakfast and watch people and meet people since the twenties when it first opened. "Meet you at Mar y Sol" is the standard reply for a discreet or otherwise rendezvous.

It was also the favoured place for the Nazis and t...

To find a nice lunch in the sun, with a view to the sea, head east, along the coastal road from Málaga for about 6 km and you will arrive in Pedregalejo. It's a pleasent walk a or short taxi ride from Málaga centre.

 Looking back towards Málaga City 

Just before you get to Pedregalejo you will see Baños del Carmen, a summer seaside resort that was opened for the rich and famous in 1918. The still beautiful building and its ruined gardens are now a restaurant and bar looking out to sea and is a great spot for a drink to watch the sunset.

The still, very traditional village of Pedregalejo has kept its local characte...

LA FRAGATA

I walked into La Fragata (which was founded by Mari y Juan in 1979), the restaurant just down the beach from me and the waiters immediately grabbed my hand and hailed me because they remembered me from last year.

The owner came out and declared "Jon Listen " the man from California ......... It was close enough and I felt like frigging Ernest Hemingway………

I have been craving fish, especially the dorada (gilthead sea bream) and fish is what they have.

 Certain fish are priced by the kg so be careful when you order.

 Here is a menu/price list

The place wasn't open for another hour and I said no problem I am going...

This is the place to go for a Sunday lunch with friends and family. It is an rustic, unpretentious beach side bar and restaurant built in the true soul of Formentera. Good food in a pretty location right on the beach and filled with almost only local people and a chilled easy ambience. 

They serve very good fish, octopus etc but, it is the paella on Sunday everyone goes for, served with an insane quantity of seafood!

Turn off at the Tortuga restaurant (which is at Carretera La Mola, Km 6.5) and head towards the coast of Platja Migjorn, where you will find yourself on a dirt road overlooking fields of wheat once brough...

El Tiburón (The Shark) is the perfect feet in the sand beach restaurant, set right on the beach at Es Cavall d'en Borrás, Es Pujols. It is set in the Parque Natural de Ses Salines, a ten minute taxi ride from the port of La Savina. 

It has a very laid  laid back atmosphere serving excellent food and drinks with chill out music in the back ground and good service from friendly staff who tend to be there each year.

Try the "house special" gambas Tiburón picante con arroz (chili prawns with boiled rice).

Chuletas de cordero a la plancha (grilled lamb cutlets). Portions are large, as you can see from the eight cu...
